Who's going to Knox 2017?

Postby rox » Thu Dec 15, 2016 4:09 pm

Hey guys,

We're signed up for Knox 2017 - will be bringing two Evo's.
May trailer one and drive on, or drive both... not sure yet.

Anyone else planning on going? We could maybe arrange some kind of YEG convoy (I know it's still far ahead but time files!).

I'll be there. I'll probably be heading out on the Friday in the morning, I know the car will pass tech so I'm not too worried about getting there really early.

I can't make it next year. I'm going to be stuck in Monaco, going to a stupid F1 race that weekend.

Psssh, that should be easy to blow off, I'd think!

But seriously, post pictures and video when you go.

I'll have the Tiburon out at Knox, probably be running some Hoosiers or similar on it.

Sounds good, so we'll either see you there or maybe we can ride together when it gets closer to the time.

I plan/hope to take my formula car. I'm registered and the money's been paid, but the car is pretty much completely stripped down, with lots of re-assembly, new fab work and new parts to be installed. I've wanted to run Knox Mountain since the 80's so I'm hoping I can get the car all back together again in time.

The new floor pan is riveted in place, time to start putting the rest back together. Definitely getting real excited for Knox and another season of Solo!

Nice. You're going to be so much faster this year now you're a veteran. What car are you racing?

Awesome!
We can have our own Alberta battles haha. I suspect this is scary and need to bring bags of balls to run at 100%...

I'm planning to have the Tib for Knox. It wouldn't do to crash the Rx8 while I'm trying to sell it :). Though I would be pretty interested to see how much faster I would be on the RE-71R's and with knowing where and how I was losing time last year. Oh well. If I can keep up with the spec Miatas this year I will be content.

Looking like there's gonna be a lot of people to play with in SP3. Maybe I should use the Rx8....

No maybe, join the SP3 Alberta Team :)

EDIT: you know you don't really want to sell the Rx8 anyway.
